    A wonderful example of Japanese kanzashi, or hair ornament, this "kushi" hair comb features elegant gold kanagai and nashiji lacquer work. The use of kanzashi dates to the prehistoric Jomon period and over the centuries and due to Chinese influences, the accessories came into prominent use during the Edo period, when hairstyles became more complex and ornamental. Today, these kushi are used only for traditional Japanese ceremonies, such as Shinto weddings, and by maiko, or geisha apprentices. Antique examples such as this set are highly desirable examples of Japanese objet d'art.
